Plymouth is a port city situated on the south coast of Devon, England 37 miles south-west of Exeter and 190 miles west-south-west of London. Enclosing the city are the mouths of the river Plym and river Tamar, which are incorporated into Plymouth Sound to form a boundary with Cornwall. Plymouth's early history extends to the Bronze Age; this settlement continued as a trading post for the Roman Empire, until it was surpassed by the more prosperous village of Sutton founded in the ninth century, now called Plymouth. In 1620, the Pilgrim Fathers departed Plymouth for the New World and established Plymouth Colony, the second English settlement in what is now the United States of America. During the English Civil War, the town was held by the Parliamentarians and was besieged between 1642 and 1646. Throughout the Industrial Revolution, Plymouth grew as a commercial shipping port, handling imports and passengers from the Americas, exporting local minerals; the neighbouring town of Devonport became a strategic Royal Naval dockyard town.
In 1914 three neighbouring independent towns, viz. the county borough of Plymouth, the county borough of Devonport, the urban district of East Stonehouse were merged to form a single County Borough. The combined town took the name of Plymouth; the city's naval importance led to its being targeted by the German military and destroyed by bombing during World War II, an act known as the Plymouth Blitz. After the war the city centre was rebuilt and subsequent expansion led to the incorporation of Plympton and Plymstock along with other outlying suburbs in 1967; the city is home to 263,100 people, making it the 30th-most populous built-up area in the United Kingdom and the second-largest city in the South West, after Bristol. It is represented nationally by three MPs. Plymouth's economy remains influenced by shipbuilding and seafaring including ferry links to Brittany and Spain, but has tended toward a service-based economy since the 1990s, it has the largest operational naval base in Western Europe, HMNB Devonport, is home to the University of Plymouth.
Upper Palaeolithic deposits, including bones of Homo sapiens, have been found in local caves, artefacts dating from the Bronze Age to the Middle Iron Age have been found at Mount Batten, showing that it was one of few principle trading ports of pre Roman Britannia dominating continental trade with Armorica. An unidentified settlement named TAMARI OSTIA is listed in Ptolemy's Geographia and is presumed to be located in the area of the modern city. An ancient promontory fort was located at Rame Head at the mouth of Plymouth Sound with ancient hillforts located at Lyneham Warren to the east, Boringdon Camp and Maristow Camp to the north; the settlement of Plympton, further up the River Plym than the current Plymouth, was an early trading port. As the river silted up in the early 11th century and merchants were forced to settle downriver at the current day Barbican near the river mouth. At the time this village was called meaning south town in Old English; the name Plym Mouth, meaning "mouth of the River Plym" was first mentioned in a Pipe Roll of 1211.
The name Plymouth first replaced Sutton in a charter of King Henry VI in 1440. See Plympton for the derivation of the name Plym. During the Hundred Years' War a French attack burned a manor house and took some prisoners, but failed to get into the town. In 1403 the town was burned by Breton raiders. On 12 November 1439, the English Parliament made Plymouth the first town incorporated. In the late fifteenth century, Plymouth Castle, a "castle quadrate", was constructed close to the area now known as The Barbican; the castle served to protect Sutton Pool, where the fleet was based in Plymouth prior to the establishment of Plymouth Dockyard. In 1512 an Act of Parliament was passed for further fortifying Plymouth. A series of fortifications were built, including defensive walls at the entrance to Sutton Pool. Defences on St Nicholas Island date from this time, a string of six artillery blockhouses were built, including one on Fishers Nose at the south-eastern corner of the Hoe; this location was further strengthened by the building of a fort in 1596.
During the 16th century, locally produced wool was the major export commodity. Plymouth was the home port for successful maritime traders, among them Sir John Hawkins, who led England's first foray into the Atlantic slave trade, as well as Sir Francis Drake, Mayor of Plymouth in 1581 and 1593. According to legend, Drake insisted on completing his game of bowls on the Hoe before engaging the Spanish Armada in 1588. In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World from Plymouth, establishing Plymouth Colony – the second English colony in what is now the United States of America. During the English Civil War Plymouth sided with the Parliamentarians and was besieged for four years by the Royalists; the last major attack by the Royalists was by Sir Richard Grenville leading thousands of soldiers towards Plymouth, but they were defeated by the Plymothians at Freedom Fields Park. The civil war ended as a Parliamentary win, but monarchy was restored by King Charles II in 1660, who imprisoned many of the Parliamentary heroes on Drake's Is
Hellbound: Hellraiser II
Hellbound: Hellraiser II is a 1988 British-American horror film directed by Tony Randel and starring Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence, Kenneth Cranham and Doug Bradley. The film is the second entry in the Hellraiser saga and draws upon its precursor, Hellraiser. Clive Barker, who wrote and directed the previous film, wrote the story and was the sequel's executive producer. At some point in the past, British military officer, Elliott Spencer uses the Lament Configuration, the doorway to the world of the Cenobites, becomes the Cenobite Pinhead. Kirsty Cotton has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital, still haunted by visions of the unspeakable horror that destroyed her family. Interviewed by Doctor Channard, his assistant, Kyle MacRae, she tells her account of the events depicted in the first film, pleads with them to destroy the bloody mattress her murderous stepmother, Julia Cotton, died upon. Despite her frantic urging, MacRae is the only one. However, it is revealed that the obsessive Dr. Channard has been searching for the Lament Configuration for years, has several similar boxes.
Dr. Channard has several patients locked in the maintenance level of the hospital. After hearing Kirsty's story, he has the mattress brought to his home, has one of his more deranged patients lie on the mattress and cut himself with a straight razor; the resulting bloodflow frees Julia from the Cenobite dimension, as it did with Frank in the first film, though Julia's physical form is whole, only lacking skin due to the amount of blood. MacRae is a witness, having snuck inside Dr. Channard's house to investigate Kirsty's claims, found multiple puzzle boxes and diagrams depicting various body parts, as well as a chalkboard with mysterious writing on it. Meanwhile, Kirsty meets a young patient named Tiffany. Tiffany, who hasn't spoken for years, demonstrates an amazing aptitude for puzzles; that night Kirsty is awakened in her room to a vision of her skinless father, who tells her in writing that he's in Hell and to help him. Come morning, MacRae informs Kirsty he believes everything is true; the two decide to return to Dr. Channard's house so Kirsty can attempt to save her father who she believes is still trapped in Hell.
Meanwhile, Dr. Channard, seduced by Julia, has surreptitiously brought more mentally ill patients to his home for her to feed on; when Kirsty and the others arrive at Channard's home, MacRae heads to the attic, discovers the grisly remains of their bodies. Julia, her skin completely regenerated and kills him, consuming his essence and completing her regeneration. Kirsty hears the commotion and rushes up to the attic, walks in on the scene. Enraged, she is knocked unconscious. Channard kidnaps Tiffany and he and Julia use her as a proxy to unlock the Lament Configuration puzzle box and enter the world of Pinhead and the Cenobites. Here it is learned that the act of opening the Lament Configuration is not in and of itself reason to be targeted by the Cenobites; as Pinhead states, stopping his fellow Cenobites from attacking Tiffany, it is "not hands that call, but desire." Thus, it was Channard´s desire who made him use Tiffany to open the box and he is the Cenobites´ target. When Kirsty enters Channard's office, she finds the box Tiffany had used and frantically tries to return it to its normal configuration.
The Cenobites find her, Pinhead seizing the opportunity to change the box to a more complex configuration and lock open the doors to the labyrinth. Pinhead tells Kirsty she is free to explore the maze but they'll be waiting to capture and torture her. Channard and Julia enter the Labyrinth of Hell, run by the god Leviathan, who dwells in the shape of a gigantic, elongated diamond rotating in space above the labyrinth and emanating black beams which make Channard remember some of the atrocities he has committed. Julia calls Leviathan the "god of flesh and desire...the Lord of the Labyrinth." Julia betrays Channard to the Labyrinth to be turned into a Cenobite. Kirsty ventures into the Cenobites' domain and encounters Frank Cotton, he reveals that he is condemned to Hell, that his punishment is to be teased and seduced by writhing female figures on beds that withdraw into the walls, depriving him of any pleasure. He reveals that he tricked her by pretending to be her father to lure her into Hell so that he can use her for his own pleasures.
At this point, Julia destroys Frank in revenge for killing her. After believing to have escaped back to the hospital and Tiffany are ambushed by Channard, now in complete Cenobite form and thus revealing the gate between the two worlds is still open; as Channard kills many of the patients, the two encounter Pinhead and the other Cenobites. Kirsty shows Pinhead a photograph of him that she took from Channard's study, he remembers that he was human, as the other Cenobites remember they were human. Channard appears. In an attempt at seizing power, Channard kills Pinhead and his minions, as they stand between Channard and Kirsty and Tiffany. Before dying, transformed by Channard's power back into Elliott Spencer, exchanges a poignant glance with Kirsty. Kirsty tricks Doctor Channard by donning the deceased Julia's skin, giving Tiffany the opportunity to finish the Lament Configuration puzzle, killing Doctor Channard, altering Leviathan into the box shape of a Lament Configuration, allowing them to return home and close the gate between the two worlds.

British Railways, which from 1965 traded as British Rail, was the state-owned company that operated most of the overground rail transport in Great Britain between 1948 and 1997. It was formed from the nationalisation of the "Big Four" British railway companies and lasted until the gradual privatisation of British Rail, in stages between 1994 and 1997. A trading brand of the Railway Executive of the British Transport Commission, it became an independent statutory corporation in 1962 designated as the British Railways Board; the period of nationalisation saw sweeping changes in the national railway network. A process of dieselisation and electrification took place, by 1968 steam locomotion had been replaced by diesel and electric traction, except for the Vale of Rheidol Railway. Passengers replaced freight as the main source of business, one third of the network was closed by the Beeching Axe of the 1960s in an effort to reduce rail subsidies. On privatisation, responsibility for track and stations was transferred to Railtrack and that for trains to the train operating companies.
The British Rail "double arrow" logo is formed of two interlocked arrows showing the direction of travel on a double track railway and was nicknamed "the arrow of indecision". It is now employed as a generic symbol on street signs in Great Britain denoting railway stations, as part of the Rail Delivery Group's jointly-managed National Rail brand is still printed on railway tickets; the rail transport system in Great Britain developed during the 19th century. After the grouping of 1923 under the Railways Act 1921, there were four large railway companies, each dominating its own geographic area: the Great Western Railway, the London and Scottish Railway, the London and North Eastern Railway and the Southern Railway. During World War I the railways were under state control, which continued until 1921. Complete nationalisation had been considered, the Railways Act 1921 is sometimes considered as a precursor to that, but the concept was rejected. Nationalisation was subsequently carried out after World War II, under the Transport Act 1947.
This Act made provision for the nationalisation of the network, as part of a policy of nationalising public services by Clement Attlee's Labour Government. British Railways came into existence as the business name of the Railway Executive of the British Transport Commission on 1 January 1948 when it took over the assets of the Big Four. There were joint railways between the Big Four and a few light railways to consider. Excluded from nationalisation were industrial lines like the Oxfordshire Ironstone Railway; the London Underground – publicly owned since 1933 – was nationalised, becoming the London Transport Executive of the British Transport Commission. The Bicester Military Railway was run by the government; the electric Liverpool Overhead Railway was excluded from nationalisation. The Railway Executive was conscious that some lines on the network were unprofitable and hard to justify and a programme of closures began immediately after nationalisation. However, the general financial position of BR became poorer, until an operating loss was recorded in 1955.
The Executive itself had been abolished in 1953 by the Conservative government, control of BR transferred to the parent Commission. Other changes to the British Transport Commission at the same time included the return of road haulage to the private sector. British Railways was divided into regions which were based on the areas the former Big Four operated in. Notably, these included the former Great Central lines from the Eastern Region to the London Midland Region, the West of England Main Line from the Southern Region to Western Region Southern Region: former Southern Railway lines. Western Region: former Great Western Railway lines. London Midland Region: former London Midland and Scottish Railway lines in England and Wales. Eastern Region: former London and North Eastern Railway lines south of York. North Eastern Region: former London and North Eastern Railway lines in England north of York. Scottish Region: all lines, regardless of original company, in Scotland; the North Eastern Region was merged with the Eastern Region in 1967.
In 1982, the regions were abolished and replaced by "business sectors", a process known as sectorisation. The Anglia Region was created in late 1987, its first General Manager being John Edmonds, who began his appointment on 19 October 1987. Full separation from the Eastern Region – apart from engineering design needs – occurred on 29 April 1988, it handled the services from Fenchurch Street and Liverpool Street, its western boundary being Hertford East and Whittlesea. The report, latterly known as the "Modernisation Plan", was published in January 1955, it was intended to bring the railway system into the 20th century. A government White Paper produced in 1956 stated that modernisation would help eliminate BR's financial deficit by 1962, but the figures in both this and the original plan were produced for political reasons and not based on detailed analysis; the aim was to increase speed, reliability and line capacity through a series of measures that would make services more attractive to passengers and freight operators, thus recovering traffic lost to the roads.
Important areas included: Electrification of principal main lines, in the Eastern Region, Birmingham to Liverpool/Manchester and Central Scotland Large-scale dieselisation to replace steam locomotives New passenger and freight rolling stock R
Hellraiser is a 1987 British horror film written and directed by Clive Barker, produced by Christopher Figg, based on Barker's novella The Hellbound Heart. The film marked Barker's directorial debut; the film involves the resurrection of Frank, who had opened the door to an alternate dimension and had his body torn to pieces by creatures known as Cenobites. Years Frank's brother Larry moves into their late mother's abandoned house with new wife Julia. An accident causes some of Larry's blood to spill on the attic floor, which triggers Frank's resurrection. To complete his resurrection, he requires more blood which Julia provides while Kirsty Cotton, Larry's daughter, discovers Frank's puzzlebox which leads her to meet with the Cenobites. Hellraiser was filmed in late 1986. Barker wanted the electronic music group Coil to perform the music for the film, but on insistence from producers the film was re-scored by Christopher Young; some of Coil's themes were reworked by Young into the final score.
Hellraiser had its first public showing at the Prince Charles Cinema on 10 September 1987. Since release, the film has divided critics but received praise, it was followed by nine sequels, the first seven of which featured Doug Bradley reprising his role as the lead Cenobite Pinhead. In Morocco, Frank Cotton buys a puzzle box from a dealer. In a bare attic, when Frank solves the puzzle, hooked chains emerge and tear him apart; the room is filled with swinging chains and covered with the remnants of his body. A black-robed figure picks up the box and returns it to its original state, restoring the room to normal; some time afterward, Frank's brother Larry moves into the house to rebuild his strained relationship with his second wife, who had an affair with Frank shortly after their wedding. Larry's teenage daughter, has chosen not to live with them and moves into her own place. Larry cuts his hand carrying a bed up the stairs, lets his blood drip on the attic floor; the blood resurrects Frank as a skinless corpse, soon found by Julia.
Still obsessed with Frank, she agrees to harvest blood for him so that he can be restored, they can run away together. Julia begins bringing them back to the house, where she murders them. Frank consumes their blood. Frank explains to Julia that he had exhausted all sensory experiences and sought out the puzzle box, with the promise that it would open a portal to a realm of new carnal pleasures; when solved, the "Cenobites" came to subject him to the extremes of sadomasochism. Kirsty spies Julia bringing a man to the house. Frank attacks her, but Kirsty throws the puzzle box out the window, creating a distraction and allowing her to escape. Kirsty collapses shortly thereafter. Awakening in a hospital, Kirsty solves the box, summoning the Cenobites and a monster called the Engineer, which Kirsty narrowly escapes from; the Cenobites' leader, explains that although they have been perceived as both angels and demons, they are "explorers" from another dimension seeking carnal experiences, they can no longer differentiate between pain and pleasure.
When they attempt to force Kirsty to return to their realm with them, she informs Pinhead that Frank has escaped. The Cenobites agree to take Frank back and, in exchange, say they will consider giving Kirsty her freedom. Kirsty returns home, where Frank has killed Larry and taken his identity by stealing his skin. Julia shows her what is purported to be Frank's flayed corpse in the attic, locking the door behind her; the Cenobites appear and, not fooled by the deception, demand the man who "did this". Kirsty is held by Julia and Frank. Frank reveals his true identity to Kirsty and, when his sexual advances are rejected, he decides to kill her to complete his rejuvenation, he accidentally drinks her blood without remorse. Frank chases Kirsty to the attic and, when he is about to kill her, the Cenobites appear after hearing him confess to killing her father. Now sure he is the one they are looking for, they tear him to pieces. With Frank out of the picture, the Cenobites attempt to abduct Kirsty. Ripping the puzzle box from Julia's dead hands, Kirsty banishes the Cenobites by reversing the motions needed to open the puzzle box.
Kirsty's boyfriend helps her escape the collapsing house. Afterward, Kirsty throws the puzzle box onto a burning pyre. A vagrant, stalking Kirsty walks into the fire and retrieves the box before transforming into a winged creature and flying away; the box ends up in the hands of the merchant who sold it to Frank, offering it to another prospective customer.

Matlock (TV series)
Matlock is an American television legal drama, starring Andy Griffith in the title role of criminal-defense attorney Ben Matlock. The show, produced by Intermedia Entertainment Company, The Fred Silverman Company, Dean Hargrove Productions, Viacom Productions aired from March 3, 1986 to May 8, 1992 on NBC; the show's format is similar to that of CBS's Perry Mason, with Matlock identifying the perpetrators and confronting them in dramatic courtroom scenes. One difference, was that whereas Mason exculpated his clients at a pretrial hearing, Matlock secured an acquittal at trial, from the jury. Since 1991, reruns of the show have been shown in syndication and on TBS, INSP, Hallmark Channel, CBS Drama, WGN America, FETV and MeTV; the show centers on widower Benjamin Leighton "Ben" Matlock, a renowned and popular though cantankerous attorney. At the end of the case, the person, on the stand being questioned by Matlock is the actual perpetrator, Matlock will expose him, despite making clear that his one goal is to prove reasonable doubt in the case of his client's guilt or to prove his client's innocence.
Matlock studied law at Harvard, after several years as a public defender, established his law practice in Atlanta, living in a modest farmhouse in a neighboring suburb. He is known to visit crime scenes to discover clues otherwise overlooked and come up with viable, alternative theories of the crime in question. Matlock has conspicuously finicky fashion sense. Matlock is noted for a fondness for hot dogs. In episode 158, hot dogs are revealed to have been his favorite dish. In contrast, after the series ended, his penchant for hot dogs was explained in the 1997 episode "Murder Two" of Joyce Burditt's Diagnosis: Murder. Matlock blames Dr. Mark Sloan for recommending a disastrous investment in 8-track cartridges, in which he lost his savings of $5,000 in 1969, forcing him into wearing cheap suits and living on hot dogs. Despite his thrift, Matlock's standard fee is $100,000 paid up front, but if he or his staff believe enough in the innocence of a client, or if the client is unable to pay he has them pay over time, or reduces the fee or waives it albeit reluctantly in some cases.
He reluctantly, takes a pro bono case occasionally. These traits, the demands he placed upon his investigators, are points of comic relief in the series.

Matlock employed Tyler Hudson, a stock market whiz, as a private investigator. Tyler would go undercover for Matlock in various guises to gather information. Matlock's most frequent prosecutorial adversary was Nebraska native Julie March. Although the two had a professional rivalry—with Julie being a prosecutor and Matlock a defense lawyer—their relationship outside of court was cordial and the two spent time together outside of court with occasional flirtations. Toward the end of the first season, Matlock took on Cassie Phillips, a cocky young law student, as an office worker. After the first season ended, Linda Purl departed from the series and lawyer-daughter Charlene was written out of the series by having moved to Philadelphia to start her own law practice. To begin the second season, Matlock went to England
Virtual International Authority File
The Virtual International Authority File is an international authority file. It is a joint project of several national libraries and operated by the Online Computer Library Center. Discussion about having a common international authority started in the late 1990s. After a series of failed attempts to come up with a unique common authority file, the new idea was to link existing national authorities; this would present all the benefits of a common file without requiring a large investment of time and expense in the process. The project was initiated by the US Library of Congress, the German National Library and the OCLC on August 6, 2003; the Bibliothèque nationale de France joined the project on October 5, 2007. The project transitioned to being a service of the OCLC on April 4, 2012; the aim is to link the national authority files to a single virtual authority file. In this file, identical records from the different data sets are linked together. A VIAF record receives a standard data number, contains the primary "see" and "see also" records from the original records, refers to the original authority records.
The data are available for research and data exchange and sharing. Reciprocal updating uses the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting protocol; the file numbers are being added to Wikipedia biographical articles and are incorporated into Wikidata. VIAF's clustering algorithm is run every month; as more data are added from participating libraries, clusters of authority records may coalesce or split, leading to some fluctuation in the VIAF identifier of certain authority records.

He meets fellow agent and old acquaintance Simon Ambrose, MI7's resident quartermaster, Patch Quartermain, junior agent Colin Tucker, who will be English's new assistant. In Hong Kong, English finds former CIA agent Titus Fisher, who reveals himself to be a member of Vortex, a group responsible for sabotaging English's Mozambique mission, he reveals Vortex holds a secret weapon that requires three metal keys to unlock, owned by himself and two other former spies. However, when he reveals his key, Fisher is killed by an elderly woman disguised as a cleaner, another guy steals the key. English chases the thief across Hong Kong, by means of easy solutions to hazardous routes the thief takes, for example, when the criminal climbs down bamboo scaffolding, English uses the lift. However, English is outwitted by another Vortex operative disguised as a flight attendant en route back to London, is humiliated in a meeting with the Foreign Secretary and Pegasus when he attempts to present the key and the plans.
He mistakes Pegasus' mother to be the assassin disguised as a cleaner and attacks her at Pegasus' daughter's birthday party. Kate Sumner, MI7's behavioral psychologist, uses hypnosis to help English recall his suppressed memory of the Mozambique incident, revealing another Vortex operative, Russian spy Artem Karlenko, masquerading as millionaire Sergei Pudovkin. English and Tucker meet Karlenko at an exclusive golf course outside London. However, mid-game, the cleaner assassin critically injures Karlenko. English and Tucker try to bring him to a nearby hospital via a helicopter, but Karlenko dies upon reaching the hospital.

When reviewing the footage of the Mozambique mission, Sumner realises the assassin has been manipulated by Vortex via a mind control drug known as timoxeline barbebutenol. Ambrose comes to pick Sumner up, English realizes Ambrose is the mole after recalling his memory in Mozambique; the cleaner assassin comes to the apartment to kill English, but he manages to escape through a garbage chute and makes for Tucker's apartment. In Tucker's flat, English persuades him to join him in infiltrating Le Bastion, a fortress in the Swiss Alps where the talks are to be held, after apologising for his mistake. In the fortress, English accidentally activates a distress beacon that alerts the guards of the fortress to their presence. Left with no choice, English commands Tucker to knock him out, so that the both of them may go up to the fortress. Having been taken into the fortress, English manages to get out of the body bag and warns Pegasus of the threat, but unknowingly imbibes the drink containing the drug.
Ambrose, at the scene, commands English to subdue Pegasus. Assigning English to be the Prime Minister's bodyguard in place of Pegasus, Ambrose orders him to kill the Chinese Premier using a pistol disguised as lipstick, designed for Pegasus. However, English tries to prevent himself from shooting the premier. Tucker arrives and interrupts Ambrose's communication feed before Ambrose resets the communication, exposing himself to be the mastermind to the others in the process. English resists again and shoots Ambrose, who escapes, but the drug enters its lethal stage, English loses consciousness. Sumner is able to revive English with a passionate kiss. English pursues Ambrose down the mountainside and both fight in a cable car. English falls out the carriage. Ambrose shoots at English, who tries to use his spy umbrella as a bulletproof shield, but is soon revealed to be a rocket launcher when he closes it; the rocket launcher destroys the carriage. On, Vortex is shut down and English is to have his knighthood reinstated by the Queen.
During the ceremony, the cleaner assassin attempts to kill English again while disguised as the Queen, which leads English to attack the real Queen by accident, realising his mistake only when the real killer cleaner is caught by the royal guards.
